Celebrity Big Brother 2017: Ray J gets emotional over Whitney Houston's death

Celebrity Big Brother 2017

Ray J got emotional in the Celebrity Big Brother house today after speaking to Stacy Francis about the death of Whitney Houston.

This week saw Celebrity Big Brother 2017 launch and some of the housemates have a history with each another.

In the show on Wednesday night, Ray J revealed that he already knew Stacy; “She’s a friend of the family. We experienced something real deep, a tragic thing happened…”

Stacy explained to Big Brother in the diary room; “I just felt it was really unfair. It was shocking when I saw Ray, I kinda shut down. I want a real talk with him; I need a heart to heart with him. I just want to have fun! I’m upbeat, not the least bit entertaining.”

She continued; “Ray J threw me under the bus. When people in America tried to make me out to be something I wasn’t, he never stood up for me. I want to know why he never said anything.

"When Whitney Houston’s sister Pat went on the Oprah show and said I was stalking Whitney Houston in the club, I was not, we were all standing there talking and having a good time, he knows that, he knows the events of the whole night.

"He never said this is a friend of my family. I’ve known Ray and his family over 15 years; he never came to bat for me. I wish he had the heart to say she wasn’t stalking Whitney in the club, she’s a friend. It was a hard time, I lost everything.”

In Thursday's highlights, Stacy was seen in the snug confiding in Coleen about her argument with Whitney Houston a few days before the singer died.

She said that following Whitney’s death the media painted as Whitney’s “enemy” and she felt Ray J could have defended her.

Later, Ray J and Stacy sat down for a talk.

"I was shook, I was very shook," she said on seeing Ray J in the house. "I have questions for you."

"It was a horrible time," Ray J reflected on their argument, "It was all my fault. It was my fault, I weren't there."

In the Diary Room afterwards, Ray J confided in Big Brother: "Stacy and I had a conversation about the incident that happened with Whitney because she asked.

"I never talk about it but it was something I felt she wanted to talk about."


He continued: "I told them how I felt and how I blame myself on a lot of stuff.

"But I had to get up off it because I don't like to get emotional. I don't like to take myself back there. I caused some flashes and got back there. But I'm okay... It still effects me."

Celebrity Big Brother airs tonight at 9PM on Channel 5.
